[MUSIC: BLOGMEET REPORT THEME,* FROM START AND FADE UNDER OPEN]:
Good Morning, Mr. and Mrs. America (remember, do not 'turn them all in!'), I'm Roberta X and this is your BlogMeet Report!
[MUSIC FADE OUT]
Most attendees were more than prompt -- Tam, Turk Turon and Your Correspondent arrived with a degree of promptness and found Shermlock Shomes, the younger (but all growed up, let us be clear!) Shomes, Kerry and Old Grouch already enjoying ale and conversation. Joanna arrived while we were crossing the parking lot and Fuzzy Curmudgeon was only just too late for the group photograph.
No. 14, a very nice toy engine. L to R atop boiler: whistle and valve, throttle and safety valve. (Kerry also brought some home-grown, hand-picked artisanal eggs for the kitchen at Roseholme, for which our thanks!)
Chatter was wide-ranging as usual -- a high point was the Shomes giftage giveaway, three nice stocking-stuffer items for three recipients selected by choice of random number.
Food? How 'bout this take on the "Ploughman's Lunch:"
A fun time for all! -- See you at the next?
*Probably the instrumental open from Baba O'Riley; you've got like 1:15 before the lyrics and it works very well as a news theme.
